Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation Scholarship
This unique scholarship supports students with dyslexia who plan to pursue a degree in a STEM field. Many of the awardees are not students who stand out for their overall high academic achievement, but rather for having higher grades in subjects other than English and for struggling with spelling and writing, while being engaged in more STEM-oriented subject matters. They say they are one of the few scholarships where a student’s GPA is not a consideration.

Deadline: February 28, 2022

SENIOR ADS FOR THE YEARBOOK
Providence Hall's Speech Department has recently finished most of the required fall hearing screenings. We have submitted several audiological referrals and have reminded many students to remember to keep their earbuds turned down to avoid permanent hearing damage. A recent poll by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association suggests that nearly half of all adult Americans have a loved one who has difficulty hearing. Please reference the graphic on facilitating effective communication with individuals who have hearing loss. Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions or concerns about your student's hearing or speech-language development.
